U.S. Navy Brings Navy Week to Philadelphia, PA Philadelphia, PA - The U.S. Navy announced it is bringing Navy Week to Philadelphia, PA today. From Monday, October 9 through Sunday, October 15, 2023. This marks the first time Philadelphia has hosted Navy Week since 2011 and will feature 75 visiting sailors from across the nation who will volunteer throughout the community and discuss why the Navy matters to Philadelphia.

Navy Week is the service’s signature outreach program designed to allow citizens of Philadelphia to learn about the Navy, its people, and its importance to national security and prosperity. The Navy Office of Community Outreach (NAVCO) coordinates Navy Weeks across the U.S. each year.

“We are excited to bring the Navy Week program to Philadelphia," said NAVCO's director, Cmdr. Anthony Falvo. “Seapower and America’s Navy are more important now than ever before and this event allows us to showcase how the Navy serves America at sea, in the air, and ashore."

Philadelphia-Camden Navy-Marine Week will feature in-person demonstrations, performances, and engagements throughout the week that will include senior navy leaders with ties to Philadelphia; sailors serving on the Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Scranton (SSN 756); performances by U.S. Navy Band Northeast; educational presentations by Naval History and Heritage Command; STEM presentations by U.S. Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command; fitness demonstrations by technicians, medics, and divers; visits to iconic locations such as running up the steps at the Art Museum on Monday at 9 AM or a flag raising at City Hall on Friday at 10 AM; as well as community service projects throughout the region including Philabundance and Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education programs.

“We encourage residents across the region to welcome our sailors here in Philadelphia," said Mayor Jim Kenney "and hope everyone has an opportunity to attend at least one of these events."
